Here's what to do during the Wildlife Expo

The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) is back for its 27th year this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (February 13-15). -- And the festival is a lot more than jammed downtown streets.

The expo has their own picks and a full list of events, but The Charleston City Paper has put together a good guide to the events.

Go check it out.

Oh, here are some of my favorites:
The Dock Dogs competition, where dogs are challenged to jump as far as they can off the end of a "dock." -- The Post and Courier did a fun video on it last year.
The Cast Net Demonstrations.
The Birds of Prey Demonstration.

Here's a list of where you can pickup tickets around town. Prices run $40 for all three days, or $20 for Friday or Saturday, and $10 for Sunday.

And all economic eyes are on the exposition: In previous years the festival has been used as an economic bellwether.
